JCPenney Special Run
#706698 Stablemate Barn
1998



It's funny how one of the more recent special runs is one of the hardest to find. Instead of the twelve-piece special run assortment collectors had become accustomed to, JCPenney's Stablemate offering in their 1998 holiday catalogue consisted of just three models and a little red barn.

Play sets don't seem to sell very well as they are expensive, contain only a few models, and come with a mess of accessories most adult collectors just don't want to deal with. These factors resulted in making the models from this set quite scarce in the second-hand market.
